An education that has been too long neglected in the public schools and in higher education is the need to teach young people how to handle everyday emotions. It is every bit as important as math and reading, because without knowing how to control and work through people's emotions, especially the destructive ones, then even the very best students in math and reading will likely not succeed in life. In ancient times, wealthy Greek and Roman parents sent their children to skilled philosophers who taught them how to effectively approach everyday life and its many problems. If we do that today, then there would be significantly fewer societal ills and excesses.
